across terrain far more difficult and hostile than that between here and Mexico. Am I wrong to understand that a complete fencing system has already been passed not once, but twice, and has never been finished due to purposeful underfunding? By LAW those enactments mandate completion of the too-long unfinished border barrier. Excuses of "it can't be done", like this special interest amnesty, is utter BS.
Don’t get me wrong about securing the border - I want it secured. I like the lighting idea. I want it manned. I don’t want people having the ability to come across illegally.
I just happen to believe that this can be accomplished without ceding territory to Mexico. If a fence can’t be put right on the border, then do something else there.
We can secure the border without taking away people’s recreation, property and livelihood.
